Dear Richard,

I am grateful for the Fowre Hymnes in *any* on-screen form, and thank
you for your generosity--BUT danged if I can actually get at the URL. I sat here for
8 mins while Netscape apparently worked to get to the site, without success--and as
it is 10.00am here, I am assuming that traffic over there is minimal? Have other
people reached the site successfully?

I am seeing those <t></t> tags quite a lot these days. Are they borrowed
from a markup language, or are they just informal devices like <g> for, I
take it, "grin" or a smiley? If the former, what language? It's not
html, which would use <cite> for this purpose.

I <em>told</em> you it was a trivial question!
